Pros: Very Bright - 500 Lm (exact same Lumens as my SunWayman V11R) This is about as bright as one car headlight. Medium is 250 Lm
Maintains output as battery is depleted with 18650 battery. Battery life with 18650 seems good.
Side mode control is nice, can operate with gloves
Focus is a very nice feature.
Does not get hot when walking outside at 40F, either the air flow is sufficient or the heat production is dissipated by the aluminum body.
Great for waking the dog.
Cons: Its not 1800 Lumen. The lowest level could be 2x as dim for more stealthy use.
Focus movement seems somewhat rickety. Focus got stuck once, had to disassemble & reassemble the head-not sure what was wrong but it is focusing better than new now. Bright when set to wide focus (500Lm), much less total lumen output at narrow focus, but still illuminates way farther on narrow.This might be from poor light transmission of the plastic lens, or from the spacing in the focus chamber that has no reflective surface.
Build quality seems cheap
Body diameter is over one inch (too big for my bike mount).
Charging port has a flimsy plug/o-ring covering it.
Other Thoughts: Not nearly as bright as Nitecore SRT7 (rated 960Lm, actual ~850lm). For the money its a great flashlight.
Gave on to my sister in Law, she loves it.
Brightness is greatly reduced on 3 x AAA alkalines, works fine with NiMH, or 18650 LI.
Description does not mention: 3 x AAAs or charging port.
Pros: quality construction
Cons: very dim output
Other Thoughts: Worth about $2, uses cheap low efficiency leds and thus a very dim output.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice color, even distribution, nice build quality
Cons: way too dim
Other Thoughts: Wanted to use this a a garage light, was expecting a quality high efficiency led for the price delivering at least 40 lumens per watt; alas I got jipped - -buying some cheap low efficiency smt style led bulb.
Don't waste your money.
I previously bought something similar to this at a Menard's sale for $1 each. I would estimate these are worth $2 each.
Apparently new egg does not screen its products for quality.
